Hawks get- Samuel Dalembert
Kings get- Jamal Crawford
Hawks get a true Center to put up front with Horford and Smith since the Kings have an abundance at the 4/5
Kings get a great scorer and knock down shooter and he can rotate with Evans/Udrih as they all can play the point and off the ball
Both teams get better and this may push the Kings into that 8th seed conversation.
The Hawks will also be able to bang inside with Boston and Orlando too
ATL would have to wait considering dalembert is injured and is said to be out 6-8 weeks. If the hawks loose crawford they loose a valuable piece of their bench considering he is a 6th man of the year candiate
That is actually a nice trade that would work for both teams. And Atlanta won't be losing that much with the emergence of Jordan Crawford and the development of Jeff Teague.
agree with 19134. jordan crawfords play may make jamal crawford expendable. its an intriguing trade but what does sacramento gain? i would rather give those extra shots to evans and cousins and let this young team develop.
I love how Jamal Crawford can't find a team where he can stay on for more than two years lol. Anyways, it seems like a good trade for both teams. Cousins is ready to start IMO, but the C backup is kind of sketch to me. But the Kings do get a solid scoring options in Crawford which would ease it for Evans.
if the Hawks would like to have someone they can have more than a yr then give Okafor and send Sammie D to Nohla and have Sac send a 2nd rounder to Nohla
wow somebody don't like Emeka Okafor.
Emeka just doesnt fit the center role that the Hornets need, he's not a good fit, he's a good player, but doesnt fit the teams needs
Kings dont like this deal, and they know what they are doing...Dalembert has a signifigant role with the Kings which is guiding and teaching the young bigs, he is fulfilling that role with amazing progress and being a great teacher. You see Cousins getting 10+ rebounds but you dont understand Dalembert helps him have the guidance and confidence to do that. You see Whiteside gaining 30-40 pounds but you dont hear Dalembert in his ear telling him and showing him he needs that wieght. Dalembert isnt going anywhere, he is developing these young bigs.
NO would love a agile Center to copy cat the CP3/Chandler combo...Dalembert is a close enough clone...
The Hawks need a Good Center for more than a Year and The Kings could offer a 2nd rounder and not hurt over it with all that youth...Crawford is a Jack and It's no suprise he'll be traded again...
Sammie D fits because of his ability to block shots, rebounds, and get garbage buckets, which is what Chandler brought and CP3 made it easy for him
What no eff that trade....If the Sixers could of got Okafor for Dalembert this whole time i'll be fuming Okafor is exactly what we need right now.
